U2 comes to mind…..
What an incredible day to be alive and on Falcon Lake. I had 3 goals for today’s trip……
1.) Get the new lefty reels I just bought dialed in.
Mission accomplished and you all know I don’t pimp any products(or very few) because I pay for my stuff just like everyone else. I’m sponsored by my hard work and wallet, but I have to tell you Daiwa’s Lexa reel is seriously bad ass. They are in the same price range as a Revo or Curado etc.
2.) Check two creeks that I have not been in months
The first creek I checked only took 15 minutes to figure out yes, yes it is loaded up and ready to be put into the milk run. I caught two keepers and had one fish bury me in a hardwood of all things. I would of liked to have seen that one, but maybe I’ll get my hook later….lol. The second creek I wanted to check? Good grief it was a battle of wills and I lost convincingly. I spent around 2 hours in there (maybe closer to 3) without a single bite let alone fish. Did I get a tid bit stubborn? you bet. It’s a prime example of why I go out scouting…..my clients will NOT see the inside of that creek anytime soon.
3.) Probe a few offshore locations with the 10xd
I did not get to do as much of this as I would of liked because of creek number 2 from above. With that said I did pull into an area that was just straight loaded full of fish and I caught em on the 10xd in 23 foot of water all the way to 1 foot of water on a lipless crankbait and everywhere in between. I beat this area to death trying to catch a fish that would of hit 3 lbs. Didn’t happen. A LOT of 0.5 pound to 2.5 pound fish. I’m not going to even try and pretend that it wasn’t fun….lol. Because it was a dag gone blast. This last spot did cause me to be more than a few minutes late picking up the kids from tennis.
You have no idea how bad I wanted to hit my honey holes today, but I didn’t. They are primed and ready for anybody man (or woman) enough to step into the ring. You all know who your opponent will be.
If you would like even more highstakesbassin action please head on over to Facebook and toss me a friend invite (Jay Greishaw) and while you are at it send a “like” over to high stakes bassin on Facebook as well. I put a lot of time in with Facebook especially with the live (ish) updates though out the day while on the water. As always, thanks for all those that support me and my business.
Gracias many times over.
